Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Community Rehabilitation Company (BeNCH CRC) has appointed Neil Moloney (left) as its new Chief Executive.
Neil joins from West Yorkshire Community Rehabilitation Company, where he was Director of Operations, and takes over from Tessa Webb.
Originally from Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, Neil studied Sociology at Birmingham University and worked as a residential officer in a voluntary Hostel.
After seven years at the Hostel, he returned to Birmingham University in 1993 to take up Probation studies.
On qualifying as a Probation Officer, he joined Warwickshire Probation Service in 1995 and then West Yorkshire Probation in 2001 where he held a number of senior posts including Assistant Chief Officer in Bradford and Head of Leeds Probation.
When West Yorkshire Probation Trust was dissolved on 31 May 2014, Neil became Director of Operations for West Yorkshire Community Rehabilitation Company.
As the new Chief Executive of newly formed BeNCH CRC, Neil is responsible for delivering services that reduce reoffending and protect the public across the four counties of Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.
